I also purchased some stem plants at my local LLS for 4 dollars. They also threw in a random plant as well. I think it might be a crypt, but i'm not sure. I also moved the lights a bit so the anubias won't get too much light. Hopefully that is an ok temperary fix.

Can I superglue the anubias to the driftwood later? I read that some members have done that. The fishing line is kind of unsightly. Thanks!
Yes, you can use super glue. Use the gel type. If the anubias roots are long, I suggest trimming them to about 1/4". That will encourage the plant to grow new roots and anchor to the driftwood faster.
Make sure that any diffuser that you get doesn't need a high PSI to operate, you will not get the pressure that you need for that from DIY Co2.
